An authentic journey through history to admire besides the most famous Angkor also the capital and the remote temples of Cambodia.
Bantey Chhmar is a little known and little visited monastic complex and still virtually untouched by the restoration.
Built in the late twelfth century and the 'beginning of the thirteenth, he was dedicated to the son of King Yayavaraman VII who fell fighting against the Champa. In fact, the bas-reliefs of the internal perimeter wall they describe scenes of the battles of that war.
Bantey means cities and in fact the complex is the size of a small town.
On the inside of the vegetation it has grown lush, even without taking the total upper hand, and the absence of tourists relive the experience of the few travelers of the colonial period.
Among the reliefs, more than a representation of Awalokiteshwar, or in Tibetan Chenrezig, deity representing compassion and simultaneously tutelary deity of Tibet, allows us to take risky shortcuts, but certainly real.
Prasat Preh Viher stands in a long disputed between Cambodia and Thailand until, in 1963, an international tribunal attributed it to Cambodia. The location of the temple, exactly on the crest of the mountain, which offers a breathtaking view on Cambodia, Thailand and even Laos, places him in a category absolutely in itself than all the Khmer temples.
In 2004 the government of Phnom Phen has opened a new road from the valley in addition to the old road built by the Khmer Rouge into the mid 80s in full civil war, making access to the temple relatively easy also from the slope cambodian.
